About this deal

On March 25, 2001, at the 73rd Academy Awards, "Things Have Changed" was awarded Best Original Song.

De Graaf notes the images of "the last train", "all hell may break loose", "standing on the gallows with my head in a noose", all contributing to a sense of impending Armageddon: "the last battle of the end times when all powers from hell will explode in one final outburst of violence". Reddit and its partners use cookies and similar technologies to provide you with a better experience. In an article accompanying the list, critic Jacob Nierenberg noted that "'Things Have Changed' packages familiar themes—love gone wrong, the inevitability of time, Judgment Day—in a bluesy stomp that begins with Dylan receiving a lap dance from an assassin-eyed woman and peaks with him hauling another off in a wheelbarrow. The video appears on the bonus DVD included in the Limited Edition version of Dylan's 2006 album Modern Times. As of December 8, 2019, the date of its most recent outing, Dylan has performed the song 1,060 times.Willoughby, Sydney, New South Wales, 25 March 2001, Taping for the Oscar Awards Ceremony in Los Angeles, California". Other notable versions include those by Barb Jungr on her 2002 album Every Grain of Sand: Barb Jungr Sings Bob Dylan, The Persuasions on their 2010 album Knockin' on Bob's Door, Curtis Stigers on his 2012 album Let's Go Out Tonight and Bettye LaVette on her 2018 album Things Have Changed, which takes its name from the song. It was also anthologized on the compilation albums The Essential Bob Dylan in 2000, [4] The Best of Bob Dylan in 2005 [5] and Dylan in 2007. Engineer Chris Shaw has confirmed there was another version, which "was really great, which had a kind of New Orleans shuffle to it". Henley added: “I was driving around one day, and I’d never heard it before, and I thought to myself, ‘Wow, somebody is really doin’ a good Bob Dylan.

Things Have Changed" is a Dylan song in the style of "Time Out of Mind" and is excellent, as expected. The beauty of ‘Things Have Changed’ is its simplicity, from its initial creation right through to its sound. He and his band performed the song in a segment recorded in Sydney, that was inserted into the Academy Awards broadcast via a satellite link. The song was inspired by a meeting with country musician Marty Stuart and Stuart's song "The Observations of a Crow" from the concept album The Pilgrim. Among the very first was country singer Waylon Jennings who made it a staple of his final live shows in 2000 and 2001.

Ultimate Classic Rock critic Matthew Wilkening rated it as the 2nd best song Dylan recorded between 1992 and 2011, saying that it "occupies a nearly perfect middle ground between 1997's pessimistic ' Time Out of Mind' and the then yet-to-be released, more hopeful 2001 album ' Love and Theft'. Things Have Changed" is a song from the film Wonder Boys, written and performed by Bob Dylan [1] and released as a single on May 1, 2000, that won both the Academy Award for Best Original Song [2] and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. Numerous artists have ventured into the realm of film soundtracks, yet when Bob Dylan was tapped to compose for Wonder Boys, it was a real game changer. On February 2, 2014, an arrangement of "Things Have Changed" was used in a commercial for the Chrysler 200, aired during Super Bowl XLVIII. As he explained to Uncut, "We did 'Things Have Changed' in one afternoon, and when we were done we did a very quick mix of it, and I thought it was just going to be a rough mix to give to Bob who’d maybe give it to someone else, like Daniel Lanois, who’d wind up engineering and mixing the final thing.

I knew it was in the movie "Wonder Boys," which I watched last night (The movie is OK - the song is the best part). He intercut footage of Dylan with sequences from the feature film, to suggest that Dylan was interacting with the film's characters. Keith Negus, in a 2021 essay on Bob Dylan's single releases, praised his vocal performance on the track for being perfectly married to the subject matter of the song: "The deceptively quirky production of a lilting, minor-key, country-blues shuffle enhances the way Dylan delivers the lyrics in keeping with the character's world-weariness and increasingly stoned and cynical outlook. And that was pretty funny, because the very last thing Bob did was raise the shaker up like 10db, making it ridiculously loud, and that was the mix he wanted to go with". Sources agree the musicians who accompanied Dylan in the studio were his touring band at the time: Charlie Sexton and Larry Campbell on guitar, Tony Garnier on bass and David Kemper on drums and percussion.When it comes to ‘Things Have Changed’, Henley says it left a lasting impression on him when he first heard it: “That most recent song he did – ‘Things Have Changed’ – really knocked me out,” he said.

Gray sees Dylan's line "I'm looking up into the sapphire-tinted skies" as an allusion to Shelley's phrase "sapphire-tinted skies" in line 71 of "Written among the Euganean Hills, North Italy". His original song for the film earned him an Academy Award and accrued acclaim on account of its lyrics, which combine poetry and introspection to explore themes of change, disillusionment, and uncertainty. In his awards speech, broadcast from Sydney, Dylan said: "I want to thank the members of the Academy who were bold enough to give me this award for this song, which obviously is a song that doesn't pussyfoot around nor turn a blind eye to human nature".In the end, therefore, ‘Things Have Changed’ stands as a testament to Dylan’s remarkable knack for swiftly creating art — a skill possessed by only a chosen few. Clinton Heylin, in his account of Dylan's songs between 1974 and 2008, believes the song was recorded at Sony Studios, New York, probably on July 25 and 26, 1999. A live version from Portsmouth, England was included on the live album Live 1961–2000: Thirty-Nine Years of Great Concert Performances. In truth, ‘Things Have Changed’ is often considered one of Dylan’s later-period gems, and rightly so. According to Olof Björner, "Things Have Changed" was recorded in May 1999 at Sterling Sound studios in New York.
